Introduction

The Treehotel is a special hotel experience situated outside the small village of Harads, a one hour's drive northwest of Lulea and just 60km south of the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland.

It offers seven different room options all individually designed by Scandinavia's leading architects with contemporary design and chic interiors. Here you can get away from the usual every day life and enjoy the peaceful and serene environment in the middle of unspoiled nature, and a great opportunity for aurora searching in the winter.

Perhaps the thought of spending a night in rooms suspended several metres above the ground is a little mind boggling, but in reality, you feel part of nature and totally safe as you relax in the modern and stylish rooms with their home comforts including WiFi and coffee machines.

On arrival at Treehotel, you first check in at Britta's Guesthouse nearby, it's then a short walk through the beautiful forest to your elevated rooms accessed by ramp, bridge or retractable ladder. During the winter time the paths can be a little tricky in places so extra care is needed. The treetop rooms are individually named and vary in size and theme, some taking extra beds for larger parties and families and some with lovely views over the Lule river valley. They have environmentally-friendly toilets and wash basins. Shower facilites are available at the guesthouse except in the new 7th Room (opened in December 2016) which has its very own shower facilities. The Cabin, The Nest, Mirror Cube, The UFO, The Blue Cone, The Dragonfly and 7th Room as well as the separate Tree sauna create an unforgettable image as you approach and take in the unique scene before you.

All meals here are taken back at Britta's Guesthouse which oozes character, charm and a cosy atmosphere - a great place to mingle with fellow travellers and relax in the evening with glorious home cooked meals.
The tranquil setting is the ideal place to unwind and enjoy the facilities including the Tree Sauna, Jacuzzi bath, Swedish Classic massage and Forest Spa – all available at an additional charge. For the more adventurous there are several optional adventures taking you out in to the wilderness and beyond, such as snowmobile safaris, dog sledding tours, ice fishing, snowshoeing, moose safari and a northern lights photography course in the winter. And fishing, horse riding, hiking, sea kayaking, white water rafting and mountain biking in the summer time.

A night or two at the Treehotel is the perfect choice to add to your winter or summer experience in this region. Please ask our Sales team for your travel options and package suggestions.
